Louie CK seems like the type of guy that would take the millions of dollars he has made and just call it a day and retire. I'm sure he can come back from this, but the guy has pretty much done everything he can in his industry.

Most of this is not surprising in the least. What is surprising is that allegations are actually being met with action.  Times have changed, for the better.

What Louie did was awful, but not as bad as the stuff everyone else has been accused of. He'll probably be back.

I’ve been reluctant to say this but it’s true.

Will you watch the Amazon Redemption special?

Hopefully the next wave can act better than the last one from the 00's.
Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

Honest question: With all these accusations (most likely true) coming about, is there a difference between someone doing something once in the past when they were young/stupid/not thinking things through, and a serial abuser like Weinstein?

My gut reaction is yes, although in today's climate, it doesn't seem like much difference will be considered.

Where are the STATS for people who would be more inclined to see a film because of the allegations? Gotta be a group of Bryan Cranston types who want to support the alleged offenders.

Well, this is interesting:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/jeremy-piven-takes-and-passes-polygraph-amid-sex-assault-allegations/ar-BBFnBGQ?OCID=ansmsnnews11

http://www.apa.org/research/action/polygraph.aspx

"There is no evidence that any pattern of physiological reactions is unique to deception. An honest person may be nervous when answering truthfully and a dishonest person may be non-anxious. Also, there are few good studies that validate the ability of polygraph procedures to detect deception. As Dr. Saxe and Israeli psychologist Gershon Ben-Shahar (1999) note, "it may, in fact, be impossible to conduct a proper validity study." In real-world situations, it's very difficult to know what the truth is."

I get that they aren't perfect.  But, in the grand scheme of things I tend to believe if someone passes a polygraph they are more likely to be telling the truth than not. 

The thing is, all this is he said-she said unless there is proof one way or the other.  I'm just not real comfortable with the new climate (which in all fairness seems to be the opposite of the old climate) of women don't ever lie about this, so if they make an accusation it's true.

And my guess is if this were the opposite.  If she took a polygraph and passed it, the reaction would be different.

the stat for false reports is like 3% so if the woman passed it would be reinforcing something that was already incredibly likely. Polygraph tests are total bullshit though so I wouldn't use it to believe anyone.

I believe the vast majority of these allegations, but the 3% stat sounds suspect:

Quote
First, there are some reasons to be skeptical of the statistic. The various studies that produced it are, to varying degrees, flawed. Some of them aren't even studies: When the 2 percent false-rape-report statistic first appeared in feminist author Susan Brownmiller's 1975 book Against Our Will: Men, Women and Rape, the sole source was something a judge had said at a public meeting. And there are outliers—a study by Eugene Kanin found a 40 percent false-report rate. Like other studies on this subject, it has its flaws: Researchers relied on the police to make determinations about whether an allegation was demonstrably false or merely unproven.

Indeed, this is a serious problem with all of the studies—a reported rape is only considered false if the police can actually prove it false, usually because the victim recanted her statement or a witness other than the perpetrator contradicted the account. There could be more false rape reports than we think, because the police are not able to definitively prove the victim lied; or there could be even fewer, because the police erroneously classified some unproven rapes as false. As Bloomberg View's Megan McArdle wrote about the false report rate, "Here's the real answer: We don't know. Anyone who insists that we do know should be corrected or ignored."

Matt Lauer gone from NBC. They say the complaint was made Monday so if that is true they must have taken it really seriously because that is FAST.

Looks like a big story about Lauer is/was going to drop, so likely a case of NBC wanting to get out ahead of it to save some face.


Quote
At @Variety, @RaminSetoodeh & I had been working on a Matt Lauer story for months and NBC was aware. There are multiple women we've spoken to with far-ranging accusations against Lauer. The power of journalism has never been more evident with this cultural change.

Danny DeVito. Although, I remember him and Rhea Pearlman separated for a little bit a few years ago because of his partying, so maybe it wouldn't be a huge surprise. Larry David is another one.
